How to Balance High Ambition with Living Fully featuring Mallory Ervin
Show Notes

Being an achiever can be a good thing, but what happens when it becomes addictive? Today’s guest, Mallory Ervin, explains exactly that. Mallory shares why winning Miss Kentucky, becoming fourth runner-up in Miss America, and participating two-times over in the Amazing Race were achievements that left her high up on a mountain top feeling unfulfilled and only wanting more. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • How being addicted to achievements stole her life, and nearly pushed her to death
  • How to balance being a high achiever healthily
  • How to detach yourself from pleasure-seeking, and how to go for happiness instead
  • How she balances running a business in the spotlight as a mom, and how to prioritize it all
  • How to know your enough point
  • And, is outsourcing worth it? Or, does it add more fuel to the fire?
